ABHM By the Numbers: ABHM provided approximately $3,139,000 in community benefits during 2014. Those benefits primarily reflect direct benevolence and discounts below the cost of care and services provided to the indigent members of our communities. However, ABHM also gave back to the greater community by supporting research, education, nutrition, preventative health and wellness, religious services, the arts, and many other initiatives and events. All of that work reflects our core value to base not only our beliefs but also our decisions and actions upon a strong foundation of Christian principles.
